It is the 2nd week of September which means over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we are playing with colours. Myrna has actually chosen 2 colours for us to play with and they are
Sometimes being restricted by choice can be a good thing. And sometimes not so much! This is the card that I made using this colour combination.
This colour combo gave me a little trouble and the card that I produced wasn’t what I had intended but I am pleased with the results. The sentiment is printed on my computer using the words from a much smaller stamp – I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point of my card so I had to upsize the font. The papers that I used are from a paper pack by Kasiercraft called “First Noel” which came out last year. And I have used some of my new Love from Lizi stickers that I got in the post not that long ago.
Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team make for this weeks challenge over at the 52CCT challenge. I hope that we will see your project over there sometime. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.
Until Next Time,
The card today is inspired by a card challenge and a world event. When I saw this sketch from Mojo Monday #519
I was watching a TV Documentary called “Chasing The Moon” about the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing. The round element and the stars started the creation of this card.
The wonderful cute monsters are from the set “Out of this World” by Uniquely Creative. I had them already sitting in my coloured image pile and knew that they were what this card needed to finish it off. These images were coloured in with my Prismacolour Pencils and I embossed the background with a star folder from Craft Concepts. The papers used are from a paper pack by Kasiercraft called “Stargazer”, I think that I will be getting a 2nd pack of this paper pack I love using it.
I want to thank you for stopping in and looking at my project. Please consider leaving a comment or a like before you go. I hope you will stop by again sometime. Now before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought.
Until Next Time,
Time for me to post up another combination challenge card that I have made. I loved the sketch #283 by Donna from CASe this Sketch that I decided to make a card straight away and I combined it with the Color Throwdown #504 using the colours Black, Copper and White.
And this is the card that I came up with using these challenges
and the information from the challenges
It was the sketch that started this card off. When I saw it I knew the image that I wanted to use. This is Space Man by DigiStamp Boutique but it has been retired but I still like it. When I went searching through my stash though I couldn’t find any copper or rust paper or card stock so I had to improvise and made my own. I had a Copper Brilliance Ink Dew Drop so I dragged this across some white card stock and heated it to dry it faster. Then I used my star punch to make the star field.
When I went to put my Space Man on the starry paper I found that it looked weird just hanging there so I made a frame using a stitched square die but the next size down was too small so I cut around the inside of the die to give me the size of frame I was happy with. And this just completed the card nicely. The sentiment stamp is from the Out of This World stamp set by Uniquely Creative.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. As always before you depart I would love to leave you with this final thought
I was sure that this past week was here to break me. But I am still here despite everything because I looked to my Lord who gave me verses from the Bible just when I needed them most. He has also surrounded me with wonderful people who help me to get through even when I feel like I am breaking. Here is one of the verses I was given:
PSALM 116 verse 7
Be confident, my heart, because the Lord has been good to me.
Have a Happy Crafty Creative
Kind of Day,
